    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

Have you ever looked at a few lines of your code or a block of Blueprint nodes and asked yourself: "I wonder how long this block takes?" Well, wonder no more -- measure it!

With MicroBenchmark, call Tic (in Blueprints or C++) before the block in question and Toc directly after. You instantly get a timing profile of the execution time with nanosecond accuracy. Optimize your code by comparing different implementations, find out if native C++ code is faster compared to pure Blueprints, identify bottlenecks and get a better understanding of your code's performance.
